The ‘Wendy’ Beret Volumizer

In 2015, we met a wonderful woman – Wendy. Wendy is the inventor of this super versatile volumizer, and it is her dream to be able to offer it to more women all over the world at a super affordable price. Enter Wrapunzel! We collaborated with Wendy to manufacture and stock these beret volumizers, and they are bestsellers for a reason… read on and see for yourself!

The ‘Wendy’ Beret Volumizer is made of sweat wicking fabric with our super grippy no-slip headband attached. It pulls on your head beret style, with no Velcro, so you don’t even need to tie your hair back! It has a little hole on the inside that allows you to adjust how much volume you’d like – just pull some out or stuff some more in. So simple. So genius! You can also adjust where the volume sits on your head; slip it on and pile it up high, or shimmy it down low. The amount of space in the cap allows you to put the “pouf” wherever you want. If you wear it with an oomphtastic scrunchy, you will get it sticking out back more, and without, it will be closer to your head. The stuffing is super lightweight – you’ll barely know it’s there!

Wendy, we are so grateful to you for designing this gorgeous volumizer. Thank you for making us head covering ladies so happy!

Check out our tutorial to see it in action!

Washing Instructions:

Like other garments, hand-washing and laying flat to dry will always extend the life of your shaper. But you can also wash with like colors in a washing machine! We always suggest doing so in a delicates bag, which will prevent the cap from snagging or becoming misshapen. Also, be sure to use a low heat-setting in a dryer, as too high a temperature can cause the stuffing to melt, potentially causing lumps. You may also remove the stuffing before washing which will shorten the length of time it takes to dry.

    The Wendy is amazing! I have scalp psoriasis which is causing some hair loss, and my wigs have become too irritating on my scalp. It was so light on my head and didn’t irritate my scalp at all. I wore this all day in the Texas heat, running around town with the truck windows down and it stayed quite firmly on my big old head! I’m super pleased! I’d also like to add that I’m completely new to wrapping, I’ve never tied a tichel before (I’ve always worn wigs in the past) but I had no problems tying a scarf around it! No tichel tantrums here! I’m so in love with how lightweight and soft it is! I’ve pretty much decided that I’m sticking my wigs on the shelf and going to be wearing tichels full time now, all thanks to the Wendy! A huge Thank You to the lovely ladies at Wrapunzel! I’m definitely going to be a repeat customer!

    When I first saw the Wendy I thought “no way I’ll ever wear something like that” but after following the fan group page for a few weeks and hearing what everyone said about it I decided to purchase a Wendy! I really like mine. The stuffing makes it look every bit as huge as you would think from the pictures but it’s totally adjustable. I was worried whether or not its medium large size headband would fit my extra large head ( measuring at 21 and a half inches.) It was snug at first but stretched comfortably within a week. I am super happy about the fact that it does not have any Velcro! I may be interested in other papers that do not have Velcro and think that a velvet headband with no velcro would be great! Someone mentioned the sides bulging out too far. Everything is adjustable . I hollowed out the bottom of mine for my bun and leave a slight edge of stuffing on both sides to even it out. It all works! The only thing I would change about my Wendy would be I would make the whole to remove the stuffing a tiny bit larger. It’s a pinch for me to get my fingers and the stuffing in and out.

    I love my new volumizer. I am new to head covering and this makes me look like I have super awesome hair underneath. It also keeps the tichel in place and ain don’t have to worry about readjusting. The best thing is I can take out some stuffing if I want to get rid of some umph. I would absolutely recommend it!

    I have mixed feelings about the Wendy but I also have a fantastic outcome. I found the Wendy to be so huge as to look ridiculous on me. The “bun” sat firmly on the top of my head like a chef’s hat and no effort on my part could push it lower. Over time I bought two of them, one black and one white, so the problem was frustrating. I loved this shaper because the Wendy is so light and soft that you hardly know it’s there. It also smelled very nice.

    On advice from Wrapunzel I partially unstuffed it with little improvement. I continued to pull out the fiberfill stuffing and finally settled with about 1/3 full. The next problem I had was that the white Wendy was lumpy. I didn’t have this problem to such a degree with the black one. I pulled the stuffing out, shredded it, and put it back with no luck. Next I replaced the stuffing entirely but the problem persisted. I finally emptied it out and filled it with soft pieces of foam, which I sewed down tight. I wore it that way very satisfactorily for a long time until it finally wore out. The material holding the stuffing began to weaken and split. Since many Wrapunzelistas keep theirs for years I’m supposing this hot, damp climate was too hard on the fabric. I should add that even though my white Wendy is a near total loss, my black Wendy is still going strong with no signs of wear.

    Well, the white Wendy “bun” might be unwearable, but the velvet part was still perfectly fine. Rather than waste it I cut off the pouf off and discovered that I now had the very best velvet headband imaginable. It’s light, soft, wide enough to really grip, and there’s no velcro to catch in my hair. Therefore, I’m going to suggest that Wrapunzel keep making Wendys since so many people love them, but to introduce Wendy headbands (Wendybands?) as well. If your Wendy wears out do try to save the band.

    That’s certainly a lovely shaper, but doesn’t seem to fit on big heads. I couldn’t fit it on my head, so I unstuffed it, and unstuffed it.. until I had a no-slip cap without volume. Then, and only then, I am able to fit it on my head. I may give it away to someone who is able to actually use it.

    • Hi! So sorry to hear the shaper didn’t work for you! If it has only been tried on and is still in unworn condition, we’d be happy to take it as a return. You can email us at wrapunzelthestore@gmail.com and the returns policy is available at wrapunzel.com/policies

    i bought the black wendy. i find that the black dye from around the band smears onto the scarves. I washed the wendy thinking it would wash out the extra dye but that didn’t work. I haven’t washed the scarves yet to see if the dye washes out, but i hate to do this each time i use the volumizer. Is there a way to get the extra dye out?

    • We’re so sorry to hear this!! Try washing it in vinegar which really sets the dye. If it continues to be a problem please write to us at wrapunzelthestore@gmail.com and we’ll figure out a way to reimburse you or send you another one because you may have gotten one that somehow has extra dye!

    I’ve had this for a year or so and there are a lot of good things about the Wendy. Just two issues: I wish it didn’t pouf out to the sides so much. I prefer having the volume on the back of my head; and the stuffing is lumpy no matter what I do. I calm it as best I can, but it’s a bit annoying to try to get it all in the right places. I’m ordering another one, so obviously these are not deal breakers. Maybe future models will change a little? Oh, and it would be great if you sold a pack of stuffing separately. Tnx!

    • We totally hear you! It’s totally possible to fix! Here is a tutorial on how to change the volume to be at the back of your head, and make sure to play with the stuffing like you would with a pillow to keep it un-lumpy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y41689bk7V4&t=735s

    I bought the Wendy a few months ago and I instantly fell in love with it! I would wear it 3-4 times a week and it was so very versatlle. I dont know if I did something wrong (probably, knowing myself?) but I had to toss it. The velvet headband had stitching through it in a pattern and it all came out. Not all at once, but over the course of a couple weeks it kept having strings hanging off, and I’d knot them then I’d take it off and find more and knot those and cut off the long parts. Eventually so much came out the headband got wonky and uncomfortable and, well that was the end of my friend Wendy. I dont know what constitutes a head too big for the Wendy but mine measures just at 19″ so maybe that was the issue. I have t be reAlly honest and say that I loved it so much and miss it so much that I’m giving serious thought to purchasing another one. Who knows maybe the thread was weak on that particular spool or something. I have never used a better more comfortable shaper and I’m encouraging all my friends and family members who wrap to buy one. I have been so pleased with everything I’ve received as gifts and purchases for myself through wrapunzel and fully trust everything they sell. It’s amazing quality and the women seem great too. I’m willing to bet that it is an anomaly to have things go wrong with anything bought here.

    • Oh no! That’s not supposed to happen! Maybe you got a defective one – PLEASE email us at wrapunzelthestore@gmail.com and we can work something out!

    I was very hesitant to buy this at first, mostly because of the price. However, I am so glad I got it. I love shapers that don’t require a separate headband or have velcro or ties. This is a great size and shape, and the option to decrease/increase the volume is terrific! My favorite aspect is that it had just the right amount of band to hold securely, but doesn’t have to sit over your ears to feel like it isn’t going to fall off. It’s super lightweight and doesn’t keep your head uncomfortably warm (let’s leave that to our scarves). It’s versatile – check out the tutorials for how to adjust the positioning. I’ve also worn very high crown styles (think Egyptian Pharoah) with a super long scarf to build up the volume and this is the perfect base for doing so. I highly recommend this shaper to anyone looking for versatility – especially if you want the possibility to go a bit bolder than normal.

    Having thin hair, this shaper is fantastic. So many people have commented on how great my scarves look & it makes it look like I have really a lot of hair!

    I don’t always like to go big with my wrap, but when I do the Wendy is the way to go!
    My favorite part about the Wendy is the ability to adjust it to being just right by either removing or adding even more stuffing.
    I work in a very diverse place and ever since I started wrapping I’ve had more conversations with the traditional African and Muslim populations of my area. When I met one of these traditional African woman she was interested in my wrap, and myself in hers. Without the Wendy I would not have been able to have her test her style on me which was a fun learning experience as well as a nice cultural exchange.
    If you have no hair or very short hair, and want to pull of a fancy African style turban, this is your shaper. This is also the perfect shaper for making a bold statement and drawing even more attention to your wrap.

    I love this shaper. I was having such a horrible problem with slippage before and now I don’t. Much needed tool!!

    This volymizer is a life saver for people that don’t have lots of hair to make a thick bun!!! 🙂 I love how natural and good it looks under a scarf and I definitely recommend it!!!

    This is the first volumizer that I have tried that has worked for me. The no slip headband was way too tight for me, but the Wendy fits perfectly. I love that you can shift the fill around and remove some. I took about 90 percent out, since I like a more realistic for me profile. I wear wigs, but they can be very uncomfortable and hot, especially in the summer. This volumizer gives me a quick, cool and attractive way to get myself ready for the day. The shape of it disappears once you put a scarf on and it just looks like you have a volume of hair under the scarf. And if I want, I can add more fill to get more of a large bun look. I will get one in black for the winter. It will help keep me warm in the cold Canadian winter and looking good!

    Hello, I have had my wendy for about 2 months now and i wear it 6 out of 7 days. If you have never had a shaper/volumizer and want to wrap, you absolutely HAVE to have one! This is the first shaper that I have ever had and it has made the difference between your hair staying covered all day vs your scarves slipping right off your head! I spent a good 2 weeks deciding on what shaper to buy and finally landed on this one. Now I will say that my experiences with the Wendy have not been perfect. And that is not at the fault of the developer or Wrapunzel. I have a BIG head, 22″ circumference to be exact. And I have noticed that wearing it everyday, in Texas heat, no less, it stretches out. I have found, through watching the Wendy tutorial, (which is an amazing place, by the way) that you can wash it. And if you dry it, on low, it helps to make it shrink back into place. This has worked wonders for me! I have been washing it about every 1 to 2 weeks. So, if you are on the fence about what shaper to get, this one is an awesome one to get!

    I just received a volumizer can’t wait to try it out and it came really quick too thank you so much

  17. I seem to be a weirdo freak with an itsy bitsy head. Unfortunately, The Wendy slipped right off. When I did manage to get it to stay, it pulled my hair painfully and it jiggled so much that I couldn’t move my head at all without the whole thing toppling off. But I am only mildly discouraged. I think I might have to take my sewing machine to it and either add velcro, or just add seams. This will require more thinking on my part. But once I get it to fit my head, I am confident that it will be wonderful.

    I was worried this would be too big for my little head, and it was. However, I just put a non slip head band under it and it works like a charm. That even lets me sit the Wendy farther back on my head. I was afraid to use it at first due to the size but once I adjusted the stuffing it actually looks amazing and has become my favourite shaper 🙂

  19. I absolutely love this. I have a very round head and was finding most wraps difficult. At first i thought it may be too tight but its not! I did a nice reagal wrap for the first time today.

  20. I am going to LOVE this shaper! I love what it does for a square scarf! And I love that I don’t need the usual equipment (hair tie, head band, chignon donut, undercap w/volumizer).

    The no slip band even holds a silk square in place without slipping.

    I absolutely love my Wendy. I did have to remove a *tiny* bit of the stuffing when I first got it, for day to day use, but I love the fact that it’s “adjustable” and that it creates such an elegant shape. It seriously makes wrapping my scarves so much easier and eliminates the headaches I’d sometimes get with velvet headbands (sometimes I’d put them on too tight). Here is a picture meant to showcase the shape of the Wendy (minus, maybe, a handful of stuffing), covered with a solid red pashmina.

    This is my first shaper and I absolutely love it. It is so lightweight, comfortable, it stays well, and it keeps cool under scarves. You can remove or add stuffing to adjust the size and you can also move the stuffing up or down to create different shapes. If you only buy one volumizer, get this one.

  23. 5 out of 5

    If the velvet band was a gamechanger and the shaper even better, the Wendy hit the jackpot! No velcro is better for me, and the adjustable amount of stuffing makes this a dream to wear.

  24. 5 out of 5

    Wendy wendy wendy wendy. The best thing ever. I have a small head and was worried it would be too big but it’s magic. It fits. I have it about 5/8 full and I like having the volume a bit higher, but you can smoosh it to wherever you want it. Magic magic magic.

    So fast delivery, I can’t believe it! 🙂 Volumizer is amazing too. Little tight, but I think it will loose in time a little. Still so soft and comfy in my head. I also got no-slip headband and scrunchys. Very good quality in all of them. I have just good words about Wrapunzel over all. Thank you!

  26. 5 out of 5

    Absolutely THE BEST shaper money can buy. I’ve been through many varieties of shapers – this one takes the cake! I suffer from migraines, and this shaper does not aggravate my head at all. Furthermore, it’s malleable, soft, breathable, and extremely durable (it has survived the demands of my two children and physically-intensive job)! THANK YOU, Wrapunzel, for making this brilliant product available!

    Dear Wendy, whoever you are, your product is sheer brilliance. For the first time since getting married I am enjoying wearing tichels. I always loved the look of awesome tichel wraps but was too intimidated to try it, especially since I am headache prone. But it was easy to wrap my tichel with the Wendy and it’s been sitting comfortably all day without my tichel slipping an inch. I love that it’s a nonslip headbach, volumizer, and shaper all in one , since the thought of too many “accessories” is daunting. Note that it comes with a TON of stuffing, I took out almost all of it and still had a hefty wrap! Keep up the great work and THANKS for enhancing my observance of Kisui Rosh!

  28. So wonderful! This was the first tichel accessory I’ve purchased and it was worth every penny. It’s light as a feather, very cool, and so easy to use! The non-slip band is MAGICAL, my double-scarf tie didn’t budge an INCH after I put it on over this! I have a large head, and this fit me perfectly well – i’m looking forward to playing with the amount of pouf in it. VERY WORTH IT.

  29. Absolutely amazing. I couldn’t get my tichels (2 at a time) to not slip down the back of my head. And that was because I didn’t have enough volume for them to sit on. Wella here came the Volumizing Beret the best invention ever. Now I am so confident when I am wearing 2 or more tichels that I want to show the beautiful folds, designs and colors and not worry that they will slip down the back of my head. Truly made life so much easier. And I love the fact that you can control the amount of volume by taking out some of the stuffing or shaping it how you want. Believe it or not you can go really poofy up hi or you can go low. Just mold it with your hands. There is a video you should watch. Ohhh!!! I so Happy

  30. Life changer thank you so much I didn’t think I could get my wrap to look the way I wanted it to and make it easier to for someone with limited arm use and muscle pain what a blessing

  31. Love it! Fits great! Very lightweight! I think every wrapper should have one!!!!

  32. The black also doubles as an opaque snood when you take the stuffing out. I came back to try and get another one, this time in white. I can’t wear a scarf without it anymore (although I haven’t tried the velvet headbands yet, this was my first purchase), and I love that the volume is completely adjustable. Please bring this back.

  33. I love the Wendy. Lots of volume, and tichels don’t slip.

  34. the idea behind this shaper is very good, my only problem being that it runs a little small. I wore it twice and both times it gave me a pressure headache. if this came in larger sizes, I would definitely get one and wear it all the time!

  35. I was leery of trying any of the volumizers for so long, then The Wendy appeared! I thought I would give it a try because I absolutely loved the idea of not having to tie another thing.
    I twist my hair up into a bun and just slide it on! No scrunchie, no hair bands, easy peasy. I love it!

  36. I LOVE the Wendy! I was agonizing over getting a large or small volumizer and this has both in one! I have removed most of the stuffing from mine and it’s still plenty of volume. I also love that there is no Velcro to snag my scarves.

  37. My Wendy is my best “friendy”. I don’t think I have gone a day without wearing my Wendy since I got it. I absolutely LOVE IT. Don’t let the “poof” put you out. It is quite easy to maneuver to get the look you want and you can always take some out or even add more if you like. I am going to buy another one as soon as the black ones are back in stock. Amazing volumizer!

  38. This is the most comfortable shaper i own. Its the middle of summer for me and i thought i would have to go volumeless to cope with the hot weather. I find the wendy has meant i can continue to wear my favourite tichels without feeljng hot and bothered. Its easy to use and i love being able to adjust the volume.

  39. Hi! So sorry the size is causing issues for you! Are you wearing it over your ears? Wearing it behind the ears will give you a little more room, and usually ladies up to an XL no-slip headband size are fine wearing it that way. But of course everyone is different and we want you to be comfortable! Please send us an email at wrapunzelthestore@gmail.com – we’d be happy to take it as a return!

  40. This is something like the 15th shaper I’ve had and it is by far the best. I have a very large head and often have a problem with the shaper not being deep enough so that my wrap would s-l-o-w-y work its way back during the day. I use the classic shaper + headband a lot, and that’s better–but it’s a lot of “potchying” and a little heavy in the Summer.
    The Wendy is the shaper of my dreams! It doesn’t move at all once it’s on, and it’s light as air! It even may have a little too much volume for me. I haven’t decided yet, but I love that I can just take stuffing out and put it back in until I’m happy.
    AND the price can’t be beat!!!!
    I’d give this 20 stars if I could!

  41. I received this item yesterday in the mail. OH MY GOODNESS, it is beautiful. Here is my review….APPEARANCE…I ordered the black and the item is a large puff, it is larger than the other volumizers but do not let that frighten you….the item has the non slip band already attached and their is no strings to tie or Velcro in the back……SIZE…I have a larger head so for ME, when I placed this item on my head as if I was putting on a hat, I could tell I was stretching the item too much….don’t despair LADIES….there is an answer to this situation. If you have a larger head like me, All I did was wear my normal no slip headband around my edges, then I place this item in the middle of my head, so I don’t stretch this item trying to make it fit my entire head.
    Yes this works, then you put on your scarf as normal. …FULLNESS…Make sure you watch the video so you can see how to push the stuffing down with your hands if it is too full for you…TAKING OUT STUFFING…yes, there is a hole on the inside for those who want to add or remove stuffing, I did not remove any or add any stuffing, I found it perfect as is….I think this might be my new favorite, I quickly put on a scarf and it really looked nice, I now have all three volumizers and it is nice to have the variety…PRICE…my favorite phrase is cost per wear. This item is 23.00, which is a very good price, if you wear it 4 times a month for a year – 48 times, divide that by 23.00 so you are paying 47 cents per wear, and most of us will have this item for years so if you even wore this item for 2 years you pay around 24 cents per wear. An item that you will wear over and over again, is well worth the cost….THANKS… I am so thankful for this site, the wrapunzel ladies have changed my life. I feel confident in my scarves and turbans and I am comfortable and confident in the workplace.

  42. I am new to wrapping and after watching a few videos of Wrapunzel Ladies, I ordered the Beret Voluminazer from France. I already used it and it is great! A real essential tool! It is very light and my wrapping looks great with it underneath (although I am still learning thanks to the videos 🙂 In addition, once you wrap the tichel, it stays in its place without any problem, no matter how active you are.
    A few days after I ordered it, my wendy beret volumizer arrived at my home in France without any problem.
    Excellent service! Bravo Wrapunzel!

  43. I love mine! I’m new to wrapping and had been doing without a shaper for months now. I wasn’t sure which one was right for me. Wrapunzel started offering this one and I’m so glad I decided to get it. It is so light and feels really comfortable on. The sewn in velvet headband I find even more comfortable than the velcro ones sold separately. The pouf is easy to remove or replace. It does require some “shimmying” to get the pouf exactly where you want it around your own bun/hair, or up high or low based on your preference. However, the versatility is really worth it. I like a modest amount of volume, but this could work even for someone that wanted extreme volume.

  44. I love my Wendy! My hair is very short and I love that I can achieve that beautiful full bun look so quickly and with no fuss. Wrapping is so much easier now that I have more surface area to work with; I can’t wait to purchase more 2in1’s and some sashes to try more layered looks. The only possible flaw I can find is that it seems a bit tight on me, but I do have a large head and I’m sure the velvet will stretch a bit with daily wear.

  45. Hi Rachael! Please email us at wrapunzelthestore@gmail.com so we can refund you! The Wendys should be very durable and out of the hundreds we’ve sold, we’ve never heard of one breaking before – even from ladies who also wear an XL velvet headband. Likely something was a bit off with the construction of yours, and we’d like to make sure you get your money back!

  46. I have been covering my hair all my life. Unfortunately, the last few years my health has caused my hair to become very thin. I have tried so many volumizers but they were not comfortable and just never looked natural. The change in the way my head covers would look was simply depressing. This volumizer has made SUCH a difference. I can wrap my head the way I used to with a comfortable and natural look. No more being ashamed to go out, I feel like I have my old self back. Thank you SOooo much for this item.

  47. I personally bought one of these and wear it often. They are so light you don’t feel wished down. They are not hot. I wore in summer in Alabama. It’s very hot here. You will love it.

  48. When I was new to wrapping my hair, I went through MANY volumizers trying to find that right one…. The one that feels like I am not wearing anything…. the one that feels cool in the TEXAS HEAT….. the one that gives me more vavoom when I want it and less when I don’t…. Well… THIS IS IT! I have not worn ANYTHING else since my “Wendy”. You may want to order a couple as I wrap daily…. while one is drying I am confident wearing my next one and have one waiting in the closet “just in case”. Wendy, WELL DONE! This. Is. It! XOXOXO

  49. Unfortunately, this broke the first time I tried it on :(. I have a large head I guess. I also purchased the shaper that ties in the back as well as an XL band and those are working great. If you have a large head, don’t get the Wendy! I would love to see this shaper have size options in the future.

  50. This volumizer CUTS DOWN ON TICHEL TANTRUMS!!!! For someone like me—–not the most patient person in the world, a little awkward with the hands—–this volumizer is a wonder. It gives enough surface area to wrap around, yet is so flexible it takes the shape you give it with how you pull your scarf and how you shape it with your hands. THIS IS A FABULOUS BEGINNER VOLUMIZER!!!!!! It’s also very lightweight and good for sensitive heads. No headaches!
